You can now stream States' new album, Room To Run, on Spinner. What are your thoughts?

EP was much better, but there are still some good songs on here. Cover art is hideous.

It's a good debut but I preferred the softer and more melodic stuff like Anxious and Asleep. It fits Mindy's voice better than the pop-rock stuff, and Bryan and Stephen are better in that genre too.

After one full listen, I'm not impressed at all, and I loved the Line Em Up EP. There's honestly only about three songs I really like. Was really expecting better from them, but I hope the album gives them some success.

the way they re-recorded Generation shows you exactly what kind of audience they are marketing this album towards.

Full length is definitely not on the same level at all as the EP. Sounds like Paramore vocals at times.

Yea, they seemed to have gone downhill a bit...in the indie realm that is. The EP was ridiculously good, and this is, well, not. It is okay, but it is so much poppier, the vocals sound like Paramore, etc etc. I could go on, but I don't want to.

Should have stuck with Copeland and Lydia.

RIGHT?! I thought the raw subdued original version was awesome, and then they rerecord it all super poppy and loud and crap? That made me upset :(

Or States should have sounded like what you'd expect from guys from Copeland working with Mindy :(

Album is definitely a grower. After having listened to it quite a bit now I really enjoy it.

Still can't get into this band because of her immature, spoiled brat personality she portrays on Twitter. I loved her in Lydia though.

The couple tracks I did list to were bland and lacking hooks. Nothing ground breaking.
